Professional statement

Dr. Samir Patel is an adult and geriatric psychiatrist in Providence, Rhode Island. Drawing from personal and professional experience, he is an expert in helping clients navigate the emotional impact of immigration, race and ethnicity and develop their own identity while maintaining cultural values. He has a deep understanding of the challenges faced by members of the LGBTQ community and particularly enjoys working with clients navigating questions around gender and sexuality, helping them find power in their unique identity.

Dr. Patel offers the convenience of both insight-oriented talk therapy and medication management, when appropriate. His goal is to help clients develop greater awareness and appreciation for their true self during times of transition and change, turning uncertainties into an opportunity for personal growth.

Dr. Patel welcomes young adults, adults, parents, and couples to his practice, conveniently located near Brown University's campus, where he is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. Friendly and warm, Dr. Patel trained at Duke University and the University of Pennsylvania. He is committed to building a safe, collaborative space for clients to identify and overcome barriers and work toward greater fulfillment in their lives.


Message to clients

People come to me because they are struggling with anxiety, depression or feeling distressed in their relationships. Or, because they are stagnating in their professional or school life. Also, given my background and training, I work well with patients who struggle in their daily lives because of feeling stifled due to issues related to being an LGBT person, immigrant (local or international), or person of color. Both individuals and couples discover that I collaborate with them to broaden their understanding of their unique struggles, give voice to the silenced aspects of their identities, and help them learn how to find solutions in themselves. As your psychiatrist, my goal is to work with you to find ways for you to live a more self-directed and satisfying life, and to experience the quality of life you deserve.
